It is the largest inland port in China, and is expected to be a boost to Xi’s initiative to build a new Silk Road to link Asia and Europe. He also visited the country’s biggest manufacturer of semi-conductor display devices.

The trip to Chongqing was the first for the president since he took office in 2012. He was accompanied by the Chongqing party secretary, Sun Zhengcai and mayor Huang Qifan.
